Cool Cataract and Astigmatism surgery

Hi..My name is Helen. I am 74 years young....Oct. 31st 2012 I had my left eye cataract removed and repair of my Astigmatism.....The surgery went well except for the scratchy feeling in the morning my exam for the eye was good with 20/20 vision..blurry though for 2 days....Dec. 5th I went in for the right eye....smaller cataract then the left eye...the proceedture was different. Left eye i was totally out of it...right eye i was somewhat awake and saw many different colors during the scared me..went back the next morning and the eye was clearer then the left one was.....but i mentioned to the surgeon that my left eye was bigger then my right one...he dismissed it as if it was ok and said to come back in 6 weeks to get a eye check dec. 9 and i woke up with full vision of both eyes......and they feel good...But I am concerned about the bigger left eye......

Re: Cataract and Astigmatism surgery

It is great to have full vision and cong for the successful operations. I had cataract surgery on Nov 27, 2012 for my left eye but my vision after one day of the op was 20/50 and it is improving ....... today have follow up apontment appointment and will let you know the results, also will ask my sergeon about your concern on changing the size of the eyes and the relation with the surgry!!! although according to my knowlage I do not see any relation!!!!

I implanted crystalens for myleft eye, can you tell me which type of lens you put in your eyes pease?.

Wish you speedy recovery
